My mom and I had just grabbed a slice of pizza and were about to be on our way again, when her phone rang. We considered stopping, but it would be difficult with the New York crowd around us and we wanted to hurry and get in line as soon as possible.
“Can you hold this?” my mom asked, handing me her red umbrella.
“Sure,” I said, grabbing it and keeping it over her as she answered her phone.
I was concentrating on walking and holding the umbrella over my mom, when I realized that I was no longer getting wet. I looked up to find the sky was unnaturally blue. Wait, that was an umbrella. I turned to the umbrella holder and my eyes widened.
“Why aren't you under there with her?” Harry Styles asked me.
“I love to feel the rain,” I explained.
“You'll be cold,” he scolded. “And your pizza is getting wet.”
“I don't care.” I shrugged.
“Do you mind?” he asked, linking arms with me and stepping under his umbrella, too. I shook my head and tried not to burst into tears of joy. “Where are you going?”
“My mom's auditioning for the X-Factor,” I told him proudly.
“Really?” he asked, surprised. “I'm heading there, too. Simon asked me to fill in for one of the judges today. I can get you in the front of the line.”
Harry did as he promised, and even had us hangout with him until the auditions started! My mom was the first to audition, and the judges loved her! Harry gave us his number, and called us when the auditions were over so we could have dinner together and celebrate!
